Budget 2021 Hearing

Yesterday was a very full day, as Council heard from over 70 Edmontonians about potential impacts of proposed cuts in the 2021 budget. Thank you to everyone who took the time to speak and represent the concerns of their communities and organizations.

With the goal of a zero-percent property tax increase, we have some hard decisions to make. These engaged citizens have given us a lot to consider as we go into next week’s budget deliberations.
